I feel like a balloon. Not a balloon in a pack tied to the welcome sign in front of the brand new supermarket on it’s opening day . Or a balloon being held by a 6 year old girl in a floral dress leaving a birthday party where her face was painted like a unicorn. I feel like an old balloon, that the helium is slowly being drained out of but still has enough left in it to float away. I feel like a balloon being held by a 4 year old who is balancing an icecream cone in one hand and me in the other palm. But a 4 year old still hasn’t perfected their fine motor abilities and to grasp both items without fail is difficult. So I am let go . And quickly I am propelled into the air and into the sky and if the wind doesn’t pick up maybe I just float for a while, until I pop or get stuck in an telephone pole or disappear into the world. That’s how I feel today.

We are Bankrupt. Now living in an apartment. This house is in a short sale. Our family home was already foreclosed on last year. This one was our investment for retirement. All gone……
once in awhile stuff like this makes me super happy.
My poor liquid heart.
a hundred years after the Titanic…..another small penised man came with a crazy idea no one could beat.
New studies suggest that taking aspirin every day can help reduce your risk of cancer. Well that’s easy, right? Take that, cancer! Run out and buy all the aspirin!
